we're here with richard blais, a chili dog like you've never ever seen before. i used to make chili dogs at my uncle's diner in charleston, west virginia. >> now i'm a little nervous. i'm getting ready to open up a restaurant called haute dog. we'll start on our grill, all right. and back here, of course, we have our kosher shot dogs. anything we do -- it's better in herbs and garlic and a lot of spices. i call this the butter jacuzzi. the jacuzzi of flavor. if you griri sometimes things can dry out. taking our dog and hanging out in that bath of flavor. there's our dog -- basil and thyme but, honestly, it can be anything you want. you need a bun so up here a new england-style hot dog bun. it's the best type of bun.
8:43am
honestly we can sear the sides of it. grilled cheese tastes better than a cheese sandwich. getting that reaction, the flavor of the browning of meat or the protein and flour so we'll use th bun, a hot dog hanging out in our flavored jacuzzi and, of course, we need our chili. here we have our chili. the thing about the chili, throw it together in a couple of minutes like a 20-minute recipe. ground beef, a little bit o chopped brisket and ketchup, mustard, molasses, gives a savory touch. >> i'm going to get in there. >> the key to this is the spice blend -- pardon me reach. this is a coffee barbecue spice blend. i'll add a little more to my chili. that's sort of amazing stuff. >> ooh, nice. >> coffee, cayenne, a little chili powder and another
8:44am
ingredient that is a spice blend. that's our chili then we have onions, onions to cut through the salt and the sweetness of the chili s these are some vie dalia onions we pickled with treasurertumeric. i love this for a quick pickle because rice wine vinegar has a little sugar in it because there's sugar in it we can make a quick pickle. pickled onions and dogs and now we have to dress it up. get the chili going and put it in the bottom of the bun. >> that's at the bottom, i like it. >> fun to get sugar in the dough like a brioche dough and cut through the salt that's in the dog, you know. >> all right. >> we'll bring over our dog that's been hanging out in our
8:45am
flavored jacuzzi. >> top it with a little bit of these pickled onions or a lot of the pickled onions. we got a little cilantro. of course, the kicker, the pepper jack foam, okay. >> peppepe jack foam. >> right on top right there. >> a modern interpretation of the chili cheese dog. >> we've run out of time. all the recipes, potato salad on our website abcnews.com/gma. rich blaze, tested them out. >> i'm a geeky fan boy. >> invention is yours.
